A tragic mudslide in 1982 ended Kai-yu Hsu’s life. He is remembered for his paintings and his poetry. After pursuing his education in foreign language and literature he served in the Chinese Air Force where he traveled to many European countries as a military aide. In San Francisco he enjoyed writing and entered a graduate program in journalism and worked as a reporter for the Chinese World Journal. After receiving his PhD in Chinese Literature he went on to teach both Chinese painting and literature. After the student strike of 1968 he formed the College of Ethnic Studies at San Francisco State University. In the art world, he was known for his bold calligraphy and ink painted landscape scenes of harbors and everyday life.
